Chapter 1373: Settle Your Own Small Matters
“You are just comparing power and influence! There is no basis for bringing up worth!”
Displeasure was written all over Su Mo’s face and he mocked, “if power is worth, then your Sorcerer Tribe is just trash. No one of the same rank as me can defeat me.”
Su mo was completely confident and he did not fear the Grand Priest. There was even a hint of disdain in his voice.
A cold flash passed through the Grand Priest’s eyes. However, he couldn’t be bothered to argue with Su Mo and he turned towards the Estate Grandmaster.
“Estate Master Du, you have heard Su Mo’s words. He confessed to killing over a hundred thousand of my tribesmen. Now, I want to take him away, do you have any objections?” The Grand Priest asked the Estate Master.
A deep gaze was held in the Estate Master’s eyes and he did not speak.
Seeing this, Su Mo’s immediately became anxious. The Estate Master’s attitude would determine his life.
A few moments later, the Estate Master glanced at Su Mo before looking back at the peaceful Grand Master Huo Yuan, who had been silent all this while. Then, he shook his head and said, “Grand Priest Wu Lun, Su Mo killed over a hundred thousand of your tribesmen for revenge. Our generation of martial artists usually takes revenge and resolves their vengeance. This is something very common. There shouldn’t be anything wrong!”
Su Mo immediately heaved a sigh of relief. It seemed like the Estate Master was still going to protect him and it made him more confident.
Upon hearing those words, the Grand Priest narrowed his eyes and coldly said, “Estate Master Du, are you trying to protect Su Mo?”
Towards the Estate Master protecting Su Mo, the Grand Priest had already imagined that this would happen and hence, he wasn’t completely taken aback.
“This is not me being biased and protecting him. Su Mo is a disciple of my academy and there isn’t really anything wrong. As the Estate Master, I naturally have to ensure the academy disciples’ safety!” Estate Master Du shook his head as he spoke. His words did not carry any loophole and there was no way that the Grand Priest could argue back.
“Estate Master Du, you are willing to become enemies with the Sorcerer Tribe for a mere Martial Emperor disciple? You had better think this through!” The Grand Priest lightly threatened. His voice maintained a calmness, but the threat behind it was obvious.
He did not bother much about Grand Master Huo Yuan and only stared directly at the Estate Master. As long as Estate Master Du relented, he would be able to take Su Mo away.
Estate MasterDu furrowed his brows. Of course he wouldn’t become enemies with the Sorcerer Tribe for a mere disciple. However, Su Mo wasn’t just any ordinary disciple!
The talents that he possessed had not been seen since ancient times. Most importantly, Su Mo was held in high regard by Grand Master Huo Yuan.
Grand Master Huo Yuan was his instructor previously and he was heavily grateful for him. When he was still a disciple 2000 years ago, Grand Master Huo Yuan had given him a lot of guidance and advice.
After a short moment of silence, the Estate Master lightly laughed and said, “Grand Priest Wu Lun, you don’t have to make this matter sound so serious! How about this: I am willing to give you a few treasures to help Su Mo pay for his crimes. What do you think about this arrangement?”
The Estate Master was slightly at a loss. If he could use a few treasures to resolve this matter, then that would be the best solution.
If he couldn’t resolve the problem with that, he couldn’t become enemies with the Sorcerer Tribe for Su Mo. After all, the main branch of the Sorcerer Tribe was strong.
“Estate Master Du, this matter can only be completely resolved with Su Mo’s flesh and blood!” The Grand Priest deeply said as his voice rang with coldness and he completely crushed any possibility of resolving the matter with treasures.
Estate Master Du was in a tight spot and he turned to face Grand Master Huo Yuan.
Feeling the Estate Master’s gaze on him, the calm Grand Master Huo Yuan said, “Grand priest Wu Lun, Su Mo is our academy’s disciple. Furthermore, he is a disciple I look highly upon. I cannot let you take him away no matter what!”
“Is that so?”
The Grand Priest slowly raised himself and with a pair of cold and dark eyes, he stared at Grand Master Huo Yuan and said, “Grand Master Huo Yuan. You are an elder among the Martial Sages. Don’t blame me for not warning you, but don’t give up everything for Su Mo!”
The Grand Priest voice was full of malice.
“Grand Priest Wu Lun, are you threatening me?” Grand Master Huo Yuan asked.
“This is not a threat to you but respectful advice that I give you. Although the Shen Wu Academy is strong, it is worth nothing in my main branch’s eyes!”
The Grand Priest shook his head and spoke. He also did not want to fight it out with the academy. If they could settle this matter peacefully, that would be best.
He was also not acting based on groundless rumours. Shen Wu Academy was indeed strong. Yet, regardless of whether it was the academy or the 13 superpowers behind it, it was not in the Empty God Realm.
Even if there were many Martial Sages in the academy, they would all be ants against the Empty God Realm.
Upon hearing his words, a flash passed through Grand Master Huo Yuan’s deep and mysterious eyes. He obviously knew how strong the Sorcerer Tribe was.
However, he also knew that the Grand Priest was exaggerating his power.
The Empty Gods would have their own matters to handle and would be all over the vast and boundless universe. It would even be hard to meet one in ten thousand years.
How could an Empty God of the Sorcerer Tribe come and fight a war with the Shen Wu Academy for such a small matter.
Of course, Grand Master Huo Yuan also did not want to offend the Sorcerer Tribe and with a sigh, he said, “Grand Priest Wu Lun, I wouldn’t allow you to take Su Mo away today. If you still want to force your way with it, you wouldn’t be able to do it alone.”
“Is that so?”
The Grand Priest’s eyes were curled into a devious smile, “Grand Master Huo Yuan, does your Shen Wu Academy want to become enemies with my tribe?”
Grand Master Huo Yuan shook his head, “although I won’t let you take Su Mo away, I will give your tribe a chance to take revenge.”
“What chance?” The Grand Priest lightly asked.
“The hatred between your tribe and Su Mo began from your thousand geniuses. Let the youngsters settle their own small matters!”
Grand Master Huo Yuan sighed before continuing, “the True Sage Realm will happen soon. Su Mo will go then, and if your tribe wants to take revenge, then they can do so in a battle of the True Sage Realm!”
The Grand Priest frowned slightly as he had not thought that Grand Master Huo Yuan would have such an idea. After a moment of silence, he nodded his head, “alright, then we will let the youngsters settle it at the True Sage Realm. If Su Mo doesn’t go, then don’t blame me for being merciless!”
The Grand Priest did not oppose this idea. Firstly, Grand Master Huo Yuan was strong. With his current strength, he would definitely not be able to take Su Mo away.
Secondly, the True Sage Realm was going to happen in 2 months time. It was going to happen so soon that he did not mind waiting another 2 more months.
Thirdly, the Grand Master and the academy would not play any trump cards in the True Sage Realm. Otherwise, they would not be able to handle the consequences.
Su Mo silently absorbed in the conversation between Grand Master Huo Yuan and the Grand Priest. Once again, the True Sage Realm seemed like it was really going to be troublesome for him!
However, he wasn’t afraid of trouble. This was his chance and it was probably much better than being taken away by the Grand Priest now right?
“Alright. Since Grand Priest Wu Lun agrees to settle the matter at the True Sage Realm then I would like to ask the Grand Priest another question. If your tribe geniuses are not able to defeat Su Mo then, what will you do?” Grand Master Huo Yuan lightly asked.
From the beginning until this point, Grand Master Huo Yuan’s face had been calm, as though everything was under his control.
“Not able to take our revenge then?”
Upon hearing the grandmaster’s words, the Grand Priest glanced at Su Mo and he laughed coldly, “do you think that is possible?”
He could see through Su Mo’s cultivation with a glance. He was a mere Rank 5 Martial Emperor. Even if his talents were ungodly, so what?
When the True Sage Realm starts, all the Martial Emperors could enter. Not only did the Sorcerer Tribe have geniuses from the side branches, there were also countless geniuses from the main branch that were participating, all of whom were rank 9 Marital Emperors. There were even quite a few whose powers and talents were even better than Wu Ren Wang.
Even if Su Mo’s powers were ridiculously good, would he be able to defeat geniuses who were 4 ranks higher than him? Wouldn’t it be impossible for him to defeat geniuses who were 4 ranks higher than him?
Hence, for the Sorcerer Tribe geniuses, it would be completely easy to kill Su Mo in the True Sage Realm.
